  1. To prepare the cilantro hummus, place the garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and paprika into a blender. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of water, lemon juice, and the cilantro. Puree until smooth, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together 1/4 cup of water, vinegar, 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, sugar, 1 pinch of salt, and sesame oil in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cucumber, tomato, and red onion. Toss to coat the vegetables in the dressing.
  3. Spread two slices of bread with the cilantro hummus, and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese. Top with shredded lettuce and the vegetable mixture. Pour on additional dressing to taste, and top with the remaining slice of bread.

FROM THE RECIPE MAKER: You may also substitute unmarinaded sliced avocados in the place of cucumbers when in a bind or for a different twist. Messy cook's motto: Recipes are a guideline to discovering what you like best. So learn, practice, experiment, and don't be afraid to make a mess. Happy Cooking!

Found the hummus to be a far too salty. Had to add tahini, oil, lemon juice to cut it. I like the idea, though.

Hummus was the only thing that I made, I didn't mean to revamp the recipe, but the main ingredient is so expensive at 8.00 a jar, so I used already made garlic hummus. I added it to the food processor along with 1 full bunch of cilantro and about 1/4 teaspoon chipole powder and 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and a pinch of salt and mixed. It was so simple and tasted just like Panera's . My son loves it, saids it taste better!

This was rather bland hummus. I added more cilantro and paprika, but it still was salty and otherwise tasteless.

Very reminiscent of "p-bread". I didn't really change anything, except I did the marinated veggies called for + avocado slices. And I added only half of the salt called for in the hummus. This one is a keeper, great weeknight dinner.

Yummy! Great fillng lunch! I did leave the tahini and feta cheese off, to make a lower fat version. Plus I am not a big fan of how tahinni paste changes the flavor of hummus. Added less fresh cilantro so as not to over power the whole sandwich; glad I did. Plus I didn't notice until too late the hummus spread called for minced garlic, and garlic powder. Would have added more minced and no garlic powder. Other than those small tweaks, I loved this recipe!

this is just like penera's veggy sandwich but the cucumbers are marinated. you could make this easier and its just as wonderful with plane sliced cucumbers.

I make just the hummus and always have some on hand around our house. We eat it on a rgular basis with toasted pita points. It makes a great snack for my 2-year-old.
